Why I am willing to sell everything and move to another country when statistics say that I will return homeless in less than six months…



The short answer Jesus!

The long one is too long to tell in a blog post (even for me) but I will sum it all up by telling the following true story.

A few years ago when I was in the middle of a fourteen day fast, I was going through a rough patch and was feeling kind of unloved. So I decided to take a walk and listen to worship music.

When I started my walk there was a light wind, nothing much, I could barely feel it.

When I was almost home I said something like “God I know that you love me but I really just need a hug, couldn’t you just give me a hug.”

Right then the wind came crashing upon me from every side. I spread my arms open wide and God just hit me from the front, back, side, top, and bottom with powerful gusts of wind.

That in itself is a beautiful thing.

But what is really awesome is the fact that at the EXACT moment the first gust hit me, I was listening to these exact lyrics were playing in my ears

His love’s like a hurricane

I am the tree

Oh How He Love Us

 Oh How He Loves us

That is why I am willing to risk everything, risk my future and my children’s

Because God is not distant!!!

God hears our prayers!!!

God loves us passionately!!!!

Because I have asked God to redirect my steps and He hasn’t, because God keeps opening doors, because God loves me, I know that I can trust Him.

I can trust him with my future and my children’s future.

So can you!!!

Because He is no respecter of persons.       

Believe Him to direct you steps, and then start stepping and you will be amazed at where you end up!!

 I know I am!

Once may be a “coincidence,” two times may be “strange,” but three times…it’s definitely a “MIRACLE!”


Being in God’s will for my life is my number one priority, but providing for my family is right up there as well. But what I am realizing is that if I am in God’s will, no matter how much it looks like I made a wrong turn, then He will provide for all my needs.

Leaving my job did not endear my with my children, who although they believed that I knew God’s call, were a little afraid that it meant no food for them. I knew that if God was leading me that He would not let them go hungry.

So here is the miracle…get ready

ONLY three times, on three separate days, I have prayed for God to give me money for food since leaving my job.

(My prayers being, “God you promised to take care of me and my kids. Well we need food, and I am believing that you will provide it).

And right after each and every prayer I would get a phone call that lead to my working and earning the money I needed for food.

What are the odds? They are God odds….He is 100% faithful, 100% of the time!!!

When you step out and trust God in a huge way, it sometimes feels as if there is nothing under your feet that you are sure to crash and burn.

But when you keep your eyes on God, He will carry you through to where you need to be!!’

NEVER let fear stop you!

Trust Him and see how good He is!!!
